Welcome to Avon School

te kura O Ōtākaro 

Avon School, Te kura o Ōtākaro, is a full primary school catering for children from Year 1-8. Avon is situated on the corner of Hamlet Street and Warwick Road in Stratford.

Avon School is a vibrant learning community. We encourage all of our ākonga and whānau to demonstrate our S.T.A.R.S values of Self Management (Mana Motukake), Teamwork   (Tātou Kotahitanga), Aroha (Kindness), Respect (Manaakitanga) and Success (Whakamana) in all that we do.

We strive to provide all ākonga with the tools and confidence to be and do their best. And enable them to be successful life long learners.
